Abstract

In the latest post of our SDGs series (with Africa at LSE and the IGC), Britta Augsburg and Paul Rodríguez Lesmes examine the sanitation crisis in India, with a study on the determinants of toilet acquisition. Toilets represent an unlikely status symbol for households, and new findings suggest that households may see toilets acquisition as a means of improving the marriage prospects of their sons.
